Created and founded by Mary Blackmon, Farm Star Living is the first of its kind – a new lifestyle brand celebrating both the lives of real farmers and the farming lifestyle in general so that people everywhere can better understand, appreciate and support farmers and the world of farming.
Mary is a 3rd generation farmer from Arkansas, who left her hometown to pursue college and a career in advertising sales and marketing in Los Angeles, Atlanta and New York City. She worked for publishing houses and internet companies (Wired, Walt Disney Internet Group). In NYC in 2002, she founded Spa-Addicts.com, the first national discount site for the spa & wellness industry. She grew it into a multi-million dollar business and a leader in the industry, and attracted hundreds of thousands of women as well as sponsors.
In 2008, however, she learned most of her family farm bordering Ark / LA would be sold. Not wanting to lose the family heritage and farmland her family before her had so cherished, Mary, along with the support of her brother Douglas, was adamant to preserve and keep the remaining farmland. She then began making changes in her life so that she could move from Los Angeles back South in order to keep, operate and run the farm. She bought back her grandparents house and renovated it, and discovered that “saving the family farm” had changed her life forever – and for the better. Today she admits that she is happier than ever & inspired, loving the farming business and now launching Farm Star Living, which she felt compelled to create for the good of farming and the people she has met along her new path. She hopes that Farm Star Living will provide farmers the respect, acknowledgment and support they so deserve and attract new farmers as well as support the current ones.
The news cycle has been dominated by the story the humanitarian crisis of immigrant children caught at our border, and public reaction has been something of a Rohrshach test: Do we rally to turn them away as the Mayor of Murrietta, CA did a couple of weeks ago? Or do we first offer shelter and aid to young people who are essentially refugees of gang violence? Also: The secret past of IRS official Lois Lerner and the initiative to break California into six separate states. MOMocrats Cynematic, Karoli and Donna Schwartz Mills discuss from the progressive point of view. Produced by Engender Media Group.
